    Oud Ispahan by Christian Dior

    Oud Ispahan is a crackling bold leather scent while keeping a gentle rose oud aspect that is very unusual blending of leather and Rose with oud. It smells similar to Leather Oud from Dior but has a bold rose and patchouli note that gives it a unique quality. Unlike many rose oud combinations there is no saffron here, but patchouli adds depth and reverb lasting boldness to the rose as well as putting a well worn patina onto the leather of this unusual oud scent. Ispahan may be Dior's dominatrix scent. I want to call it the "punisher". This rose/patchouli/oud wants to take charge, but it never knows how or when to quit. I can still smell the echoes of flagellation of Ispahan upon my skin, two days after - through showers and cleansing - It's a beast of longevity. rating 3.5 / 5.
